Just a note to interested readers that on the wonderful Madwblog, there’s a great write-up and gallery of images of the Clayhanger Spring Clean that took place this morning (Saturday 19th March 2016) in the village, where some excellent community-mined folk came together to do a litter pick and show their village some love.
Like the Brownhills Big Tidy a few weeks ago, it was nice to see an event organised that was free of political stunts, and wholly for the community. And to top it all, the volunteers did a fantastic job.
As I’ve said before here, it’s sad there’s a need for volunteers to do this sort of thing, but while there is I salute anyone who takes it upon themselves to clean and care for the place they live and love. My thanks and respect to all, but particularly Helen and Area Manager Laura Terry who really worked hard to get this off the ground and make it happen.
Now, if we could get the messy buggers who cause the problem to stop dropping litter in the first place, that’s be great…
